ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has decided to file an appeal in the Supreme Court against the Lahore High Court’s verdict in the Hudaibiya Paper Mills case. A NAB official said the bureau would file the appeal with the apex court tomorrow.

Earlier, Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rasheed said that the Supreme Court (SC) will take up the Hudaibiya Bill case if the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) fails to complete the investigation.

Talking to reporters, Sheikh Rasheed said that at first, the case was against one person but now, it is the entire family which is corrupt. “I can’t back off from Hudaibiya Mill case,” he added.

Rasheed, one of the petitioners, had moved the Supreme Court against the NAB , accusing the anti-graft watchdog of failing to file an appeal in the Hudaibiya Paper Mills case in accordance with the SC’s Panamagate verdict.

A national daily reported on August 15 that the additional prosecutor general had informed the Supreme Court on July 21 that the bureau would file an appeal in SC to open the Hudaibiya Paper Mills case within seven days but the bureau had failed to follow the given timeframe. 

While a private TV channel reported that the NAB had been deliberating on filing an appeal in the case, which was decided in a meeting headed by the NAB chief in July this year.
